Permission sought for 127 more homes on large development near Haverhill




A planning application has been submitted to West Suffolk Council for the next phase of work on the 1,150-home development north west of Haverhill.

If approved, the application by Persimmon Homes (Suffolk) for reserved matters on Phase 2B of the development would pave the way for the next 127 homes to be built, together with footpaths, car parking areas, cycle storage and landscaping.

The first phase, for 200 homes, has already been completed and full planning approval for Phase 2A, comprising 41 properties, was given last November.

If all goes to plan, construction of the final leg of the development, Phase 6, is anticipated to begin in 2030.

Outline planning permission was granted for the 1,150 homes, plus a school, sports and community facilities, in March 2015.

A ‘reserved matters’ application then follows for each phase of development thereafter, where specific details of the proposed phases are submitted.

If approved, Phase 2B will include 89 homes for private sale and 38 for affordable housing and will feature a mix of one- to five-bedroom flats and houses.
